Shot this in the New York City Subway (Tube?) beneath Union Square. This gentleman was playing some great traditional fiddle tunes. I'm sitting with a few minutes to spare between tourist activities here in New York City.
We are off to a comedy club at 11:00 PM (23:00) tonight. It is true. This city never sleeps.
My best to all of you in 2012.

A great candid image Walter, I love the movement in the person on the left, although I assume by the title he's not the subject, I also like the way the windows provide three distinct frames! Great one to start the New Year.

I like the way you've composed and seen this, it's a sort of natural triptych. A picture in every frame but the three pull together.
The angle gives the impression of the fleeting glance - normally with a composition like this I'd want to skew the verticals and formalise the triptych, but not with this one.
